The Story on the Stones:
Interpreting Gravestone Symbols and Meanings
Presented by:
John Veverka, Heritage Interpretation Training Center
Gravestone art is an important part of American culture. From death’s-heads and angels to weeping willows and wheat sheaves, gravestone art speaks the language of symbolism. Carved messages on grave markers tell of the deceased’s life and spirit without using words. Join us to discover the symbols on the stones.
